. >> thanks. >> nice to see you. >> same here. >> coming up. caught on tape, speaker john boehner says president obama wants to annihilate republic republican -- the republican party. even for boehner, that's a low point. plus, the right wing freak out over the president's inaugural address. america's changed. republicans haven't. also, hillary clinton, joe biden and what everybody is saying about them in 2016. it's a big show tonight. so stay with us. ♪ >>> have you joined the politics nation conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. believe it or not, everyone was speculating about 2016 today. will it be hillary clinton against joe biden? phil says it would be interesting to see who obama endorsed? it certainly would. the letter says obama runs the people in the country like our president. casey says it's time for a woman to run the show. sorry, joe, i'm for hillary. we've got more on the possible sweet 16 match-upcoming up later in the show. but, first, we want to hear your opinion. please head over to facebook and search politics nation and like us to join the conversation
to issue and vary depending on what the subject is. i don't think anybody thinks that john boehner is going to let the country go off the fiscal cliff. he's not going to hurt the economy. he's not going to allow that to happen. chris: is he in control? >> that's the big question. chris: "national journal." a lot of reporting now that what's going to happen the republicans are going to go with -- they're going to let defense cuts take effect because that means a lot of the domestic cuts take effect which is conservativism and getting their way. also possibly hurting the economy. although that's a conspiratorial notion on my part. what are the republicans going to do? big issue coming up. >> we reported this week that they're going -- the moving toward letting those across the board cuts go in and this is the best shot we have at it. budget control. it's going to become the law. march 1. so there's no debate about that. and to undo them, democrats are demanding tax increases. and republicans are saying no way. chris: an expert on capitol hill. kelly. what do you think -- when you go around an
rd. there's a new debt ceiling plan from speaker john boehner and the house republicans that could force senate democrats to finally show their hand and pass a budget. plus it's only day four of president obama's second term, but joe biden is already commenting on possibly running for the top job himself in 2016. we'll show you what he said in a minute. first the new developments in the debate over guns in america. the national rifle association last night delivered a sharp response to president obama's inaugural address. speaking in reno, nevada, way waywayn wayne lapierre lashed out at one word from president obama. >> we cannot mistake absolutism, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you, and americans throughout all of this country, to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. it's a way of redefining words so that commonsense is turned upside down and that nobody knows the difference. >> lapierre vowed not to give ground on gun control including effor
republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as he begins the second term. if you ask john boehner or mitch mcconnell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inaugur
create the legacy. earlier this week, as you probably know, speaker boehner spoke on society saying the obama administration wants to, quote, annihilate the republican party, and shove it in, quote, the dust pan of history. do you agree with that interpretation of obama's inaugural address? >> i believe that republicans and democrats both have the design to try to become dominant, and so the republicans would certainly like to decrease the power of the democratic party and the democratic party would like to decrease the power of the republican party. that's what politics works, and maybe speaker boehner, because he gets bossed around by fellow republicans, maybe he's a little sensitive to those comments. >> let me ask you about your role, talking about helping create a legacy. you've been involved in philanthropy. do you have plans for 2014 congressional cycle, sir? >> well, no i'm not running if that's what you mean. [laughter] >> i mean -- >> [inaudible] >> take a filing break now. >> i very, very much want to be involved in helping those senators and congressmen and women who can

that's breaking congress, you have speaker boehner that can't control his own caucus. i think when you see that sort of extremism in congress and nothing moving forward, i think it's a unique time and calls for unique measures. >> say something. >> no. i'm always -- >> hard to argue with that. >> margaret, do you see republicans -- how do you see republicans playing this? >> here's what's fascinating. there's the hastert rule, right? which boehner shunned two times now. you have to get the majority of the coalition to go along with the bill or somehow eroding away the power base. twice now boehner with sandy and then the fiscal cliff deal has had -- depended on a majority of democrats and reasonable edge of the opposition, reasonable amount of republicans to go along with it. can this sustain itself? that is barack obama's best hope of a legacy piece in the second term. >> everybody stand by because we have some important news coming up. >> let me guess, band related. >> band related. not only the marching band, we have rock n roll. we have solid rock n roll. also, listening to grambli
. it was very different. in fact, speaker boehner said this week -- this is it. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party, and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> donna, is that the plan? >> well, first of all, they've done a great job at basically annihilating themselves, you, young man. but the truth of the matter is, i thought the president's speech had a perfect -- had a strategy. it was to really motivate the country that we still have work to do, to seize the moment so long as we seize the moment together. it's one of the first speeches that the president has given over the last two years that i could actually read and recite and memorize and really feel inspired by. i thought it was great to use seneca and selma and stonewall, to talk about the progress, the history, the common thing we share as americans, our struggle for freedom and equality for all people. it was a great speech. >> it was a great speech. >> but he wasn't exactly
alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> we
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
-of-living adjustments. john boehner and republicans decided they want to have an argument over the debt ceiling, because of the new year we will be better positioned. they quickly have realized that is not going to be the lever they thought it would be. host: you have covered three presidents, clinton, bush, and now president obama. people say the political divide between these branches is stronger now than it has been in years. you agree or disagree? guest: i absolutely agree. host: why/ guest: i think it is a building that has been taking place frankly since the past couple administrations. it was the war in iraq. for the republicans, the government spending. it is also the election system and the way we run our primaries. we have a more ideological- purified house of representatives than we have had in a very long time. that is because some people would argue redistricting, as well, which in the past election both parties to it. in the states where democrats are not in control they redraw the districts to make the majority democrats. the republican side as well. this is the first time republicans hav

for the country. last week house speaker john boehner started that dumb beat saying president obama was out to annihilate the republican party and ryan amplified it when he spoke at a future of conservatism summit this saturday. >> the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyielding. we can't get rattled. we won't play the villain in his morality plays. we have to stay united. we have to show that if given the chance, we can govern. that we have better ideas. >> president obama has said he hoped this re-election would break that republican fever of total opposition but in an interview with the new republic interview, brand new magazine, he said obviously that hant happened yet. joining me is columnist cynthia tucker and "the washington post's" eugene robinson. i want to start with gene up here. it seems to me they have this new sort of gee, whiz, we're getting beat up, but they were the party that for four years shut the door on a new president. he won the election -- >> and said, you know, our number one goal is to make him a one-term president and they said, no, no, no.
thought that he had settled the issue, and speaker boehner too, with allowing higher rates and some other changes to limit some reductions, to bring in more revenue. they thought, okay, that piece is complete. well, now democrats are looking at putting a budget together that they haven't formally done, but said revenue will be in it. so that will be a huge fight. i think one of the hard parts tc and we struggle with it as journalists, the ideas are complex. the fact that it leads us into the future, it's so hard for any of us to see that crystal ball and know. so the deadlines have become the way they operate. needing short-term, immediate deadlines to force people to act. and that is exhausting for the public as well as the hill and it's not always that effective. >> and it will continue. and we have a lot more to come with our power panel. but we want to go to trivia time. who is the only treasury secretary to serve under three presidents? the answer -- andrew mellon. he was appointed by warren g. harding in 1921 and suddened to serve under calvin coolidge and herbert hoover. a lot of f
bickering gets put aside. do these guys like each other or do they not like each other? mr. boehner said something rather strong about harry reid. we assume that kind of language was not used in the white house this morning, but can they really get along and do what needs to get done? >> there is -- there are pockets of enmity that are quite well-known. what's really wonderful about washington, and this day is going to be full of this, is that you can have members, particularly on the senate floor, that can just bash each other. john has had a bird's-eye view of this. during the day with key issues of state at risk, and at the end of the day they can go off to the moncle and have a drink or a steak and so -- >> although a lot less than used to take place. >> that's true. >> jill biden, the vice president's wife, the second lady of the united states, begins her way down to the podium. >> i think there is more partisanship about to break out. >> call it bipartisanship. >> maybe i'm caught up in the spirit of the day. >> explain. >> i'll explain. >> and where do you see that? >> i have some
with house speaker john boehner. that is going to be one of the factors as we're looking at his second term he has this ambitious agenda at the same time has to deal with the economy and budget concerns that we talked about. >> nancy is our capitol hill correspondent she's been at the capital for us reporting all day. the next order of business, at least in terms of the house of representatives will be increasing the national debt limit. in other words, allowing the government to borrow more money so that it can pay the bills that it's already in cured. how do you see that rolling out over the next days and weeks. >> house republicans changed course pretty dramatically last week they were at their republican retreat, this is a tradition all members of the house republican conference went away from meetings for three days in williamsburg, virginia. at the end of that three-day meeting they came out said, we said we were going to fight raising the debt ceiling until we got dollar for dollar spending cuts now we're going to hold a vote that is going to be held wednesday to raise the debt cei
president obama has been reluctant to join in that junk without knowing that in fact speaker boehner republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell would be able to join hands with him as he takes the lead. let me say i think that entitlement spending that republicans house what they ais a is three months they will allow the debt ceiling to be hiked and try to attach some spending cuts or at least say we need to be engaged in negotiations for further increase in debt hike. i think that was a recession for republicans in reality they were losing this argue uchlt. it reengineers to the point that 60 percent of americans think you have to have spending cuts right now. >> you listen to the president's senior advisor today he was talking again about a balanced approach saying whatever deal on the debt ceiling has to have tax loopholes closed. speaker boehner brought the 800 billion in loop whole closures in the beginning of the fiscal cliff negotiation that should be a part of this deal. despite the fact that the president wanted rate increase on the fiscal deal and that's all they want.
more to them. but emotionally they probably wanted to make boehner pass this bill with his republicans. you know, in a way don't blame them for that. it's a harmless game. there are harmful games and harmless games. that was a relatively harmless one. obama also supported the passage of this, john, i think that if it had been in danger i think enough democrats would have switched over and voted yes. i think they were just trying to make a point. >> john: that makes me feel better. but let me ask you something the number one criticism from my republican friends has been so budget has been passed. why can't you democrats pass a budget how shameful. how should democrats respond to this? >> well, it is true that they haven't passed a budget. you can say that matters or it doesn't matter that much because they operate these days on the continuous resolutions so on and so forth. it does put a little bit of pressure on the senate democrats to do this. but of course this is another thing where you can just just--nothing is written in concrete. you can pass a budget that says we are going to ha
, that's breaking congress, have you speaker boehner who can't control his own caucus. i think when you see that sort of extremism in congress and nothing moving forward, you're in a unique time and it calls for unique measures. >> say something. >> margaret, do you see republicans -- how do you see republicans playing -- >> here's what's fascinating, there was a precedent called the hasser rule, which boehner has shunned two times now, this was the precedent you had to get the majority of your coalition to go along with the bill, otherwise you were eroding away your power base. twice now with sandy and with the fiscal cliff deal has depended on a majority of democrats and a reasonable edge of the opposition. reasonable amount of republicans to go along with it, can this sustain itself? that is barack obama's best hope of a legacy piece in his second term. >>> everybody stand by, we have important news coming up. >> let me guess, band related. >> not only the grambling marching band, we have rock 'n' roll. we also got alina cho doing investigative journalism right now, who's going to be
house is for the worse. mr. obama and john boehner are barely on speaking terms. host: that is the "wall street journal's" take on what is ahead for the second term for president obama. then the "baltimore sun" -- host: so that vote taking place on wednesday in the house. about our coverage, here is the "baltimore sun" this morning. they note in here -- host: we're getting your thoughts on the second term and the inaugural address. beverly, north carolina, democratic caller. good morning. caller: his speech was wonderful. and i think now, at last, he has come into himself. four years ago, his speech was mostly about -- we will just say he came to office believing that he could join people together, that there were no blue or red states, just the united states. well, republicans surely through what i call a monkey wrench into that. so i really believe now that he changes his strategy and he believes and sees diversity. he's going to tackle it. i think he is now going to fight for the democratic legacy, for people with social security and medicare. he is going to be himself now. that is wh
. when he is secretary of state. now john boehner is saying the white house has no choice you but to agree with this decision that you have made but will they? >> well, i don't know for sure but i would just say the president's decision is what's in the national interest of our country. well, when you think about job creation, energy independence, protecting the environment, all of that is done with this route. so to me, he is at a stage where he could approve it and should approve it. again, i don't mind him taking 60 days to review it. i understand that but let's don't, we shouldn't have this go on the entire year. it is really now time for the president to act. bill: it's a lot of jobs and goes right to the heart of our energy policy as you would argue. the left considers this product dirty oil. what do you say to that? >> i say to that, look at the big picture. this is about energy independence. you know what? i've talked to young men and women who are over defending our country in the middle east because of oil. i don't want them over there for those reasons. if we reduce
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people
boehners and the mitch mcconnells and say in the search for common ground, i hear what you guys are saying? >> look, i think the whole theme of this speech was that throughout our history we've had very, very significant differences and we've been able to work through those differences and of course, you know, you're a student of history, now we've gone through more significant eras of dissent and disagreement than this. his point was we can come together. the point on absolutism though, is we can't come together if we are unyielding and unbending in our points of view. >> why so little talk about jobs and the economy? >> well, i think if you looked at the opening passages of the president's speech he talked about building an economy in which opportunity abounds, in which people can get ahead. that's the fundamental question and obviously jobs is a -- is an essential issue for our country, but also, building an economy which those jobs pay and which people can get ahead, that's fundamental. i mean, we have a state of the union speech this three weeks in which he'll have an opportunity to l
of boehner. they felt that speaker boehner was doing a good job, but at the same time in trying to do some things with this president, i'm not talking about center, i'm talking about even right of center, and they were complaining after listening to the speech that there could be and should be more cooperation. but, again, you got about 50 tea partiers that are very active and very much to the far, far right. >> yeah. >> yeah, and they don't come to washington to listen or to meet anybody or to find common ground. they come here to issue no votes and issue press releases and go home and tell people they didn't support anything or anybody, and they figure that they can win primaries that way. it's a new kind of politics, and i don't think it's constructive. >> the president though also, congressman, talked about the fact that the longer you're in the white house, the more humble you become, and there is an acknowledgment, is there not, that this has been a tough four years for him. >> it's been a very tough four years. keep in mind that i'm the ranking member of the oversight and government
